Cardiff Met Ladies kept their hopes of a domestic 'treble' alive when they won 1-0 after extra time away to Abergavenny Women in the quarter finals of the FAW Women's Cup.
The standout tie of the round proved to be as close as expected and after normal time could not produce a goal, Kitty Wells gave the Archers the lead in the third minute of extra time and this proved to be the only strike of the game, taking Met into the last four and another step closer towards retaining the trophy.
Standing in Met's way in the semi finals will be Cyncoed Ladies, who ended the hopes of the last remaining team from outside the WPWL when beating Northop Hall 7-0. Gwennan Davies led the scoring for the Mighty Oaks with a hat-trick, and also on target for Cyncoed were Caitlin Bevan, Kirstie Pervin-Davies, Lauren Harris and Athina Varnava.
Swansea City meanwhile booked their place in the last four with a 4-1 victory away to Llandudno Ladies. Kelly Newcombe opened the scoring for the Swans just after the half hour and Stacey John-Davis added a second early in the second half. Sophie Hancocks increased Swansea's lead and after Llandudno pulled one back from the penalty spot late on, Emily Richards rounded off the scoring for the Swans in injury time.
Swansea will now be up against Port Talbot Town who won 3-1 against Rhyl Ladies, which means that all four semi finalists are from South Wales. Rhyl did take an early lead but Port Talbot hit back quickly with goals from Laura May Walkley and Courteney Thomas, before Jess Denscombe headed in the clinching goal during the second half to give Hayley Williams her first victory since being appointed as manager at Port Talbot.
The semi finals will be played on Sunday 4th March, at neutral venues which are yet to be announced.
